8 simple rituals to unlock your healthiest glow ever

Your ultimate Glow Guide to making meaningful and intentional choices that can change your skin, your life and our planet.

New Year, New You? 

It’s 2022 and it’s high time you rethink this phrase! With 2020 setting off a wave of health scares, and a wave of challenges in your personal and professional life, the pressure to “change” in a time of a pandemic can be frustrating, if not stress-inducing. The last thing you need right now is another anxiety trigger. 

Instead of self-improvements, ground yourself on self-love – embrace processes over promises. 

This is what matters most in a time of uncertainty, when looking inward for meaning and stillness is essential — especially when you can’t make sense of what’s happening around you. 

How about you finally focus on progress, instead of perfection?! 

You’ve endured hardship and losses since 2020, but you’ve also survived and thrived in one way or another since then. Pat yourself on the back! 

You need to recognize and reflect on those gains. Every win–big or small–is a step towards progress. 

Take the steps that make space for self-acceptance and for realistic resolutions. 

No matter where that journey takes you, or how much time it takes, we’re here to help you continue what you’ve already started–with minimal yet mindful efforts that maximize results in all aspects of your life. 

Welcome to Your Ultimate GLOW GUIDE!

Hosted by beauty and wellness expert, Pure Culture co-founder, Kim Reyes-Palanca 

Hi! Kim here! 

I’m a former beauty editor, and currently a beauty and wellness columnist for One Mega Group and Manila Bulletin.

This synergy of beauty, health and wellness is something I’ve completely immersed myself in for over 15 years. I’ve always believed in beauty’s transformative power and its higher purpose—now fully being realized by many through self-care.

Mindful, conscious, clean, innovative, purposeful, pampering, delightful—these are guiding principles that have led me to the art and science of holistic beauty, and I’m continually learning and discovering more as I go along. 

Pure Culture is the culmination of everything I love about beauty—beauty is connection, about wholeness and well-being. In all my years as a beauty editor/columnist, it is exactly this sentiment of looking and feeling good that I’ve always shared with everyone. Now I can add another aspect–doing good, too.

Cultivating my curiosity has helped me live a more mindful and purposeful life. My love and appreciation for beauty and a healthy lifestyle, plus food and skin sensitivities led me on this path of searching and exploring more natural ingredients, understanding the mind-body and gut-health connection, and drawing guidance from medical professionals, health practitioners, and other experts for a more holistic approach to health. 

I’m a work-from-home mum surrounded by three boys—my husband and two sons—and enjoy long and languid baths, spas, skincare, makeup, headbands and hairstyling, Pilates, and flow exercises equally, and with a passion. 

Are you ready for a transformation?

She speaks from the heart and from experience. You can’t go wrong with any of her recommendations”
